Do you think that designer items are worth the mark-up in price? I'm talking about everything that comes with designer labels.

Jeans
Headphones
Sunglasses
Shoes
Phone Cases
ect...


I think that the general consensus would be that these items are not worth their price but it's the social influences that persuade people to purchase such items.

I hate to say it, but it really depends on what brand I suppose. I think cars, dress clothes and shoes are worth the price difference because there is a significant change in quality.

There are some designers that you just pay for the name.
I'm a cheap-o sometimes x3 lol

Real worth is in stuff that's known for it's quality, so if it's expensive because the designer is known for the quality, guaranteed it'll be worth the price in the long run.

Otherwise it depends on the substitute, some stuff is just as good, better, exactly the same and some stuff there is no sub! So I guess it depends on the situation.

Jeans, Headphones and shoes are probably better if you get designer.

Sunglasses and phones cases not so much unless you're talking about a case for protecting not for cosmetics~

I don't care for designer stuff.

How it looks is more important than what's on the collar.

Jeans and phone cases yes. Everything else no

I don't care how I look. I'm so handsome I don't need to worry about maintaining my already perfect appearance.

Most of the stuff I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole, but being a gamer I just can't stay away from something like Musterbrand.

In the event that I come across some kind of discount, that is. High-Quality-Pricey is still pricey.

I wanna have a Stone Cold Steve Austin t-shirt but I ended up having a Daniel Bryan t-shirt instead. =T

I honestly don't care what brand of clothes I would wear, as long as it's comfortable and fits me.

If I was rich I'd wear designer everything all the time. Meh why not. I'd enjoy it. Sounds fun.
